So I called DOS again this morning. She said the visa is still under AP. She said the case looks really good and they don’t need anymore documents. I said if you have all of the documents you need, then what is holding it up. It’s been 2 weeks now. She said all cases go through AP, but she couldn’t tell me how much longer it is going to take.

It's not a Jamaican embassy thing, the US Embassy here in Jamaica has been issuing visa on average 0f 3-5 days too, both for immigrant and none-immigrant. I had my interview on Monday. Got my visa yesterday. I don't know about everyone going through AP after interview. If that were the case the waiting time for visa for everyone would be longer. All the necessary checks are usually done during the length of time filing the petition takes. Some case get put into AP after an interview for several reasons: further background checks, further verification of co-sponsor's info, etc.

I do feel for you OP. I hope them telling you that everything looks good means you will be out of AP soon and the visa issued. All the best.
